Background We hypothesized that fractional flow reserve (FFR)-guided percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) would be superior to medical therapy as initial treatment in patients with stable coronary artery disease. Methods Among 1220 patients with angiographically significant stenoses, those in whom at least one stenosis was hemodynamically significant (FFR, ≤0.80) were randomly assigned to FFR-guided PCI plus medical therapy or to medical therapy alone. Patients in whom all stenoses had an FFR of more than 0...

PURPOSE: Evidence accumulates that an active lifestyle positively influences cancer treatment outcome. A "smartphone application" (app) such as "RunKeeper," to self-monitor physical activity (PA) might be helpful. This study aimed to examine whether using RunKeeper to increase self-reported PA is feasible in cancer patients and to evaluate patients' opinion about using RunKeeper in a 12-week program. METHODS: Adult patients (n = 32), diagnosed with cancer, were randomized between usual care (n = 16) or a 12-week intervention with instructions to self-monitor PA with RunKeeper (n = 16)...

Although several factors are known to increase the risk of tuberculosis, the occurrence of tuberculosis disease in an infected individual is difficult to predict. We hypothesize that active human cytomegalovirus infection due to recent infection, reinfection or reactivation plays an epidemiologically relevant role in the aetiology of tuberculosis by precipitating the progression from latent tuberculosis infection to disease. The most compelling support for this hypothesis comes from the striking similarity in age-sex distribution between the two infections, important because the age-sex pattern of tuberculosis disease progression has not been convincingly explained...

In this study, the chemical modification of bulk beech wood is described along with its utilization as biosorbent for the remediation of copper from water. The material was prepared by esterification using anhydrides, and reaction conditions were optimized to propose a greener process, in particular by reducing the amount of solvent. This modification yields a lignocellulosic material whose native structure is preserved, with an increased amount of carboxylic groups (up to 3 mmol/g). We demonstrate that the material can remove up to 95% of copper from low concentration solutions (100- 500 ppm)...

Over the past 25 years, several randomized controlled trials have investigated the efficacy of different antiviral agents for cytomegalovirus (CMV) prophylaxis in allogeneic hematopoietic-cell transplantation. We performed a systematic literature review, conventional meta-analysis and network meta-analysis using a random-effects model and risk ratios (RR) with corresponding 95% confidence intervals (CI) as effect estimates. Fifteen randomized controlled trials were identified, including seven different antiviral agents: acyclovir, ganciclovir, maribavir, brincidofovir, letermovir, valacyclovir, and vaccine...

When 3D electron microscopy and calcium imaging are used to investigate the structure and function of neural circuits, the resulting datasets pose new challenges of visualization and interpretation. Here, we present a new kind of digital resource that encompasses almost 400 ganglion cells from a single patch of mouse retina. An online "museum" provides a 3D interactive view of each cell's anatomy, as well as graphs of its visual responses. The resource reveals two aspects of the retina's inner plexiform layer: an arbor segregation principle governing structure along the light axis and a density conservation principle governing structure in the tangential plane...

2D layered metal hydroxides (LMH) are promising materials for electrochemical energy conversion and storage. Compared with exfoliation of bulk layered materials, wet chemistry synthesis of 2D LMH materials under mild conditions still remains a big challenge. Here, an "MgO-mediated strategy" for mass production of various 2D LMH nanosheets is presented by hydrolyzing MgO in metal salt aqueous solutions at room temperature. Benefiting from this economical and scalable strategy, ultrathin LMH nanosheets (M = Ni, Fe, Co, NiFe, and NiCo) and their derivatives (e...

High electrical conductivity and the exposure to more active sites are crucial to boost the performance of a glucose sensor. A porous binary metal oxide nanoarray integrated on a binder-free 3D electrode is expected to offer a highly sensitive sensing platform. As a model, porous NiCo2O4 nanowire arrays supported on carbon cloth (NiCo2O4 NWA/CC) have been prepared and used for enzyme-free glucose sensing. NiCo2O4 NWA/CC shows larger effective surface area, superior electronic conductivity, and higher catalytic activity towards enzyme-free glucose sensing, with a linear range from 1 μM to 0...

Peri-implant infections are the most common cause of implant failure in modern dental implantology. These are caused by the formation of biofilms on the implant surface and consist of oral commensal and pathogenic bacteria, which harm adjacent soft and hard tissues and may ultimately lead to implant loss. In order to improve the clinical situation, there has to be a better understanding of biofilm formation on abiotic surfaces. Therefore, we successfully developed a system to cultivate an oral multispecies biofilm model in a flow chamber system, optimized for the evaluation of biofilm formation on solid materials by direct microscopic investigation...

Gastric cancer is the fifth most common cancer and third leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide. Several studies on angiogenic blocking agents in gastric cancer revealing promising results by the use of monoclonal antibodies against VEGFA or its receptor VEGFR2 or against VEGFA activating pathway. The validation of biomarkers useful to better organize the clinical trials involving anti-angiogenic therapies is crucial. Molecular markers such as RNA are increasingly used for cancer diagnosis, prognosis, and therapy guidance as in the case of the targeted therapies concerning the inhibition of angiogenesis...

Since the discovery of red fluorescence in fish, much effort has been invested to elucidate its potential functions, one of them being signaling. This implies that the combination of red fluorescence and reflection should generate a visible contrast against the background. Here, we present in vivo iris radiance measurements of Tripterygion delaisi under natural light conditions at 5 and 20 m depth. We also measured substrate radiance of shaded and exposed foraging sites at those depths. To assess the visual contrast of the red iris against these substrates, we used the receptor noise model for chromatic contrasts and Michelson contrast for achromatic calculations...

The ganglioside GM1 is present in neuronal membranes at elevated concentrations with an asymmetric spatial distribution. It is known to generate curvature and can be expected to strongly influence the neuron morphology. To elucidate these effects, we prepared giant vesicles with GM1 predominantly present in one leaflet of the membrane, mimicking the asymmetric GM1 distribution in neuronal membranes. Based on pulling inward and outward tubes, we developed a technique that allowed the direct measurement of the membrane spontaneous curvature...

The purpose of this study is to investigate the technical feasibility of measuring relative positions and orientations of the tibia with respect to the femur in an in-vitro experiment by using a 3D-tracked A-mode ultrasound system and to determine its accuracy of angular and translational measurements. As A-mode ultrasound is capable of detecting bone surface through soft tissue in a non-invasive manner, the combination of a single A-mode ultrasound transducer with an optical motion tracking system provides the possibility for digitizing the 3D locations of bony points at different anatomical regions on the thigh and the shank...

A novel reduced graphene oxide supported nickel cobaltate nanorods composite (RGO-NiCo2 O4 ) was prepared by a simple ionothermal method in deep eutectic solvents for the first time. Electrochemical results demonstrated that the obtained nanocomposite modified glassy carbon electrode exhibited excellent electrocatalytic performance towards the oxidation of glucose with a wide double-linear range from 1 μM to 25 mM and a low detection limit of 0.35 μM (S/N = 3). NiCo2 O4 nanorods with many small interconnected nanoparticles provided many electrocatalytic active sites, while RGO with large surface area offered good electrical conductivity...
